Overview

An EL expressions is an expression enclosed with ${ and }, i.e., the syntax is ${expr}. For example,

 <element attr1="${bean.property}".../>
 ${map[entry]}
 <another-element>${3+counter} is ${empty map}</another-element>

When an EL expression is used as an attribute value, it could return any kind of objects as long as the attribute allows. For example, the following expressions will be evaluated to boolean and int, respectively.

 <window if="${some > 10}"><!-- boolean -->
   <progressmetter value="${progress}"/><!-- integer -->

If the class does not match, ZK Loader will try to coerce it to the correct one. If failed, an exception is thrown.

Multiple EL expressions could be specified in a single attribute:

<window title="${foo.name}: ${foo.version}">
